Episode 036 - To Ride A White Horse
2nd November 2013, 35m 39s, 49.3Mb
It has been three long and glorious years since Pwyll journeyed to Annwn and became firm friends with Annwn and his own kingdom is just beginning to shown signs of strain. It has been hot with fine weather for so long that the possibility of drought is becoming a real threat. Pwyll has not taken a Queen and produced an heir and the people fear that the land is suffering from his lack of fertility. Pwyll, however, has other things on his mind...
This episode is also the seventh episode of the First Branch: Pwyll, Prince of Dyfed and the beginning of the second half of that Branch - the story of his encounter with Rhiannon.
This is the first Special Report that we have ever made after going to a Faerie Festival. We camped for three days with some lovely people, saw some incredible bands and browsed amongst some really great market stalls. In this show, we are going to try and bring you a taste of that Festival with a few little interviews with some of the guests we met, some of the stall-holders but mostly with an amazing 12 pieces of music! This is going to be a monster show - but we hope you have as much fun listening to it as we had at the festival and get a feel for how much fun these Faerie Festivals are!
In the final episode of the first half of Pwyll, Prince of Dyfed we tie up all the loose ends and find out whether Pwyll has fulfilled his promise to Arawn or whether Arawn still has a trick or two up his sleeve. We find out what happens when Pwyll returns to his homeland, the beautiful Dyfed, and discovers how the Grey Lord has ruled his country while he was away. Finally, we discover the truth behind the Magic Pigs...
This episode is the sixth episode in our Welsh Mythology series and continues the story of Pwyll, the Prince of Dyfed.
